Kale Redbor Seeds

Brassica oleracea (Acephala group, hybrid)

Item #0225

50 days. This kale has it all. Beautiful, ruffled leaves are tasty and have amazing color. Extremely cold tolerant, Redbor’s red color intensifies and flavor improves as temperatures drop in the fall; plants can last even through hard freezes. Add small leaves to salads, and use larger leaves as a stunning garnish. Plant in fall with pansies, violas and snapdragons for long lasting color.

This packet sows two or three 7-foot rows depending on spacing.
